Creative dramatics activities may offer opportunities for active application of skills necessary to the development of higher level thinking processes. Drama affords the participants the opportunity to concentrate attention upon individual elements in the real and imagined world. Within this framework, the student, while attentive to detail and sequence, increases powers of accurate observation, increases the ability to identify cause-and-effect relationships, and is actively involved in inferential thinking. Drama experiences integrated with vehicles designed to provide opportunities for the application of reading skills and the interpretation of written communication also offer individual extensions of the relevancy of that which is read. The creative action that can go on in classrooms is a process which requires the integrative curriculum planning of teachers and students. Ownership in the development of ideas, the analysis and synthesis of creative thought related to literature, the relevant interrelationship of human thought and individual talent in the expressive arts, and the creation of a creative dramatics performance model transform cognitive and affective taxonomies into active classroom activities.
